Wilkins asked Popovich whether he was joking, especially in light of the dinner he had just shared with Hill. In reality, while Hill and Wilkins dined, Popovich, Spurs chairman Peter Holt and team president Jack Diller were engaged in a two-hour phone call on whether to fire Hill. They decided to let him go, but the group would sleep on it. “We were all surprised,” Wilkins recalled. “All of us thought he was joking. He sat down on the bus. Bob Hill never came out, and he told the bus to pull out. ‘Oh, I guess he’s serious.’ That’s when it all started.”
